I was reading some of my back issues of Military History magazine (my other hobby) and came across an article on the 25th U.S. Bicycle Corp. I thought others might enjoy seeing this.

It gave me a sense of irony after reading the post about how bikes should get off the roads because after all, cars were here first. What you know, the bike was here even before the road : )

There's a nice book called "The Bicycle in wartime" with a lot of similar photographs.
Got it from Barnes and Noble.

A little-known factoid about the bicycle corps-they were almost entirely Afro-American, many of them were also black Seminole (the infamous "buffalo soldiers").
